It sounds nice when it's on, but if you get some weird equalization problems or distortion with sounds then you'll know that's the source.

I wonder if most people just don't even bother installing the Xfi driver.

DON'T worry about noise ... even cranked at 100% I can't hear the Noctua fans AT ALL. But they never run THAT fast, and you have 2 different Low Noise filter adapter cables you could use as well if you want them to run quieter, but I don't use them. The NH-U9B SE2 is a great little cooler, but I had size restrictions with my case I couldn't get a taller CPU cooler than that. You might consider the larger Noctua's ... the NH-U12P SE2 especially and yes it will fit fine the MoBo if you're only using 2 sticks of RAM, but also the NH-C14 and NH-C12P SE14 units with the down draft air make good choices also.

Thanks LA_Kings_Fan. I think I will buy the NH-U9B SE2 but I have one last question, is it possible to regulate the fan with Maximus IV Gene-Z because the fans only have 3 pins ?

PS: I just measured the max height clearance with my case: 145mm so I can't use the NH-U12P SE2 (158mm) and the NH-C14 looks great but I hesitate it will create air turbulence inside the case while the NH-U9B SE2 will push air toward the Top case fan.

So I thought I'd share the latest. (LA king fan etc)

Went over to a friend hat had a couple of ddr3 in his pc that were on the list in the manual.
first the Corsair Vengeance™ DDR3 1600MHz CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
and a set of dominator cmd4gx3m2b1600c8.
And result , all the same, powers on and error 53 within 5 sec. Then we swopped gfx cards to se, and still the same. Removed the mem alltogether, and the same , error 53. The manual states that 'no memory installed should bring up error code 55 , but seems like error 53 is all this baby can do :-) Removed the HK to se if anything at the back were shorting, removed the fan and cpu, looked fine. So I quess I have to make a phone call tomorrow.

Had to go with that one too, I have a Lian Li but a PC-V354 with also a fan on top. Because of this I use only one fan, no need for 2, the 140mm suck the air from it.

YES ... you don't need PWM 4 pins, because the Gene MoBo can control the fan headers via Q-Fan in the BIOS or Fan-Xpert in the Asus AI Utilities Suite. The NH-U9B SE2 is a decent little Noctua, I think I and two or three others here are using it. It's not as powerful at cooling as the bigger Noctua's, but IT FITS smaller cases smile.gif is quiet smile.gif and keeps things Cool enough IF you're not going for OC'ng extremes, 4.8 MHz or under and you should be fine as long as there's some decent airflow inside your case.

Aww bummer dude, I thought for sure the Memory was the issue, shame if you have to RMA this board, I think I can recall only ONE other person having to do that so far, otherwise most of these boards have been rock solid steady from day 1. Might try PM'ing Gary Keys, Raja@Asus, Brian@Asus or Mason@Asus over on the Asus ROG forums for some assistance, either in trying to resolve the issue or if you need help with the RMA process.
